Body Wax For Hair Removal

Body Wax For Hair Removal

There are many ways to get rid of excess body hair. There are creams, epilators, and waxing. Waxing for hair removal is very effective since its results last for up to six months at a time. While many kits are available online and in stores, there are method that is removing hair out of body at home by using sugaring.

According to About.com, sugaring is an ancient middle-eastern practice uses an all natural paste or gel made from food-derived ingredients like sugar, water, and lemon juice to remove the hair follicle from the root.

This process, sugaring, has many advantages. For instance, it can remove more hair quicker than waxing and has the same results. It is much easier to clean up, as well, since it is sugar based, not waxy. Furthermore, it is available at your own home. So, you will not need to see a professional, spend money on products that may or may not work.

Here is how to make the paste: first, you need a cup of sugar. Then, you add to it half a lemon and squeeze the juice out of it. Finally, you add some water. Getting the consistency right is tricky, but to make sure you have the right consistency, the sugar should be a nice golden hue.

Much like waxing, sugaring results last up to six weeks, however, as About.com points out, this process is less painful because the sugaring is water based. Thus, it can be removed without as many bruises or rashes.

After the paste is made, you are ready to start removing hair. Wait for the paste to be cold. Add olive oil to make the paste easier to control and move on your skin. You can decide on the length of the strips, but you can always go for the three-inch length and two inch width, as it this is the traditional way to wax. Then, leave a part of the sugar strip to be your tab so you can pull the sugar strip in the direction opposite of the hair growth.

It is helpful, whether you choose to wax or to use sugaring, to take your time. Play some nice music in the background. Use water or olive oil to remove the wax or sugar so you do not have to deal with dried up wax, which is very painful to remove without causing any skin rips or bruises. Take a nice cup of tea with you while you wax, make a ritual of it and try to make the most of it as tea time, it will make the pain, whichever level you experience, go by faster and be more of a blur rather than a painful experience as a whole.

A Typical Laser Hair Removal Treatment

A Typical Laser Hair Removal Treatment

When the day arrives for you to have your first laser hair removal treatment, it is normal to feel nervous and possibly a bit anxious. This is because it is something you have never done before and you are not sure what to expect. Try to relax and think of this visit as any other doctor visit.

If there is a wait once  you arrive at the office, try to keep your mind busy so you will not worry about the upcoming procedure. Perhaps a friend could accompany you to your appointment, or, if  you are alone, read a book or magazine. Having your payment ready will also help you to relax as it will be one less thing you need to worry about.

When it is your turn to enter the treatment room, you will be instructed to remove all necessary clothing and a gown will be provided.  If photographs of the area to be treated with laser hair removal were not taken during the consultation, the nurse or assistant will take them now.

The area to be treated will be washed to cleanse it of any lotions, cosmetics, perfumes or deodorants. It will then be prepped with alcohol. Depending on the procedure, the area may, or may not, be shaved. Your skin may be cooled before treatment to help reduce any side effects from occurring. You, and everyone else in the room, will be given safety goggles to wear during the procedure.

The doctor, or technician, who is doing the laser hair removal procedure will preform a patch test.  This will give  him a chance to gauge your tolerance of the treatment and also select the correct fluence levels.  It will also give you the opportunity to experience how the laser feels and hopefully relieve some of your anxiety. A single pulse will be sent to the test area, which will be near the area to be treated. It will be examined for any sings of damage to the skin such as blistering or separation.

When the doctor is ready to start the procedure, he will aim the laser at the hair follicles of  the area to be treated.  Because the hair follicles have a dark pigmentation, they will absorb the energy from the laser’s light. The time that is needed for the procedure will depend on the amount of hair to be removed, the spot size of the beam, and the scanning pattern of the hand piece that the doctor is using.  Laser hair removal treatments can take anywhere from 10 to 60 minutes, depending upon the area treated.

Many people say that the laser feels like a rubber band being snapped on your skin.  Others describe it as more intense than that.  If you are feeling discomfort or pain, you will be given a topical anesthesia or cooling remedies.

Once the laser hair removal treatment is completed, you will be ready to get dressed and discuss post treatment care. You may experience some temporary side effects such as redness and swelling, which usually disappear within a day or two.

Once you have experienced your first laser hair removal treatment you will be much more relaxed if you require additional treatments.
